Hero and Heroine -- David Cousins        Recorded by The Strawbs

Intro and bridge:

Dm DmSus2 Dm DmSus2 Dm DmSus2 Hero's face was gaunt and tanned AmSus4 Am His sail was set in search of land Csus2 C His life-raft, solely by him manned Dm Was guided by the tide Dm DmSus2 Heroine wore fleecy white AmSus4 Am She beckoned like some savior bright Csus2 C Shipwrecked sailors in the night Dm Were bid welcome to her side Where one man's search must surely cease The irresistible white fleece Led Hero in search of the peace Which she alone could offer Thus he knelt before her feet Wary lest their eyes should meet He knew his life was incomplete For he had yet to suffer Enticing Heroine, so calm Took Hero firmly by the arm Told him that she meant no harm, That she alone could save him Hero could no longer speak While realizing he was weak His life increasingly grew bleak For all the love she gave to him While storm clouds gathered high above The Heroine he grew to love Turned slowly to a snow white dove And spread her wings to fly Crushed and broken in the end Hero watched his sould ascend Knowing that he was condemned To sail all alone to die
